The amount owed in leveraged debts in The States is $64-$68 trillion.....the $700 would be like throwing a cup of water onto a burning haystack. It was never going to work. /sigh

Just noted a new york market agent stated the 700 billion isnt that much when u consider fanny mea & leahman brothers had assets over a 2 Trillion Dollars so this will make things much worse.

why did they not insure themselves against bad debt?

Fanny Mae's assets are 'ahem'...houses which are worth diddly squat in the States. Lehman Brother's debts far out-stripped their assumed assets. As an example, one of 3 new build 4 bed detached, near me, has just been sold. The houses were on the market for £349,999 and had not been sold in 9 months. The one sold last Friday went for £165,000. If I was a buy-to-let landlord I would be getting ready to leap of the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

No more new 'Homes under the Hammer' programs for a while.........

Thankfully my mortgage is paid off and I don't owe the banks any money. Now if I could do without a car and food, I'd be set. But hey, it's all Gordon Brown's fault isn't it?..........
